Escher Cats! – Catwoman #21!

The second and final part of one of my favourite Catwoman stories. Unfortunately the cover doesn’t quite hold up to the quality of the interior.

Yeah, I think Balent is starting to slip on the covers. He may emphasize curves some time but he did know how to draw them. Same with the arm/torso connection.

Actually, the arm of the monster looks great and the detailing on the wall is neat too, but – what on earth happened to her torso?? Plus the positioning of her legs, but it took me a minute to figure out Balent was trying to depict her right underarm.

Unfortunately, in this issue Catwoman can’t save everybody, even though she tries (and she is genuinely grieved over not being able to save the antagonist from doing away with himself in his attempt to take everyone along with him). And she also doesn’t get credit for basically writing the entire movie script herself since (spoilers) it never actually existed in the first place, so there was no way she could steal it.

Also she wrote the whole thing in basically one night.

Yeah. That’s definitely got to sting a little.

Ouch. So much ouch.

Catwoman also couldn’t save this cover, and I’m not sure her injured leg muscles will be able to recover. Or her arm.

As always, Catwoman’s screenwriting non-career and her comics belong to DC, not me, and Escher Girls is the creation of the awesome Ami Angelwings. And the Escher Girls bingo card belongs to the Escher Girls fan who created it.
